How to level Engineering in wow Shadowlands

This article will explain everything you must know about leveling Engineering in the Shadowlands expansion from 1 to 115, and also how to create gold by completing the profession.

As is the norm, Engineering is all about explosions, fun toys and ways to connect with our environment in...creative ways (that could be a disaster, of course)! You can add new abilities to your belt, including Belt Modification: Dimensional Shifter Icon Modification: Dimensional Shifter Icon Belt Modification: Dimensional Shifter, bring back allies from battle with Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator Icon Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator, and even teleport at will all over Shadowlands by using Wormhole Generator Shadowlands Icon Wormhole Generator: Shadowlands such as in this clip!

You can boost your swimming speed, and boost your main stats when you complete world quests with the newly added Engineering optional reagents, and can also create scope enchants for weapon ranges and a special pet

In the end, unique Engineering goggles are back and you can use them to zoom in to target places around you, as Eagle Eye Icon Eagle Eye works. They also boost your proficiency within Shadowlands Engineering, which is essential to make PHA7-YNX icon PHA7YNX even if you aren't a Gnome.

Leveling Engineering from 1-100 in Shadowlands

In the game, achieving 100 levels of skill Shadowlands Engineering is quick, particularly if it is possible to gather the required materials before starting to level. Since it can be difficult to market your products with a profit due the profession's niche nature so we'll focus on low-cost leveling.

Feel free to design the items and belt enchants at any point while leveling. They are expensive but well worth it, depending on your style of play.

1-75 Shadowlands Engineering

Be aware that you'll require traditional engineering-based tools like Gyromatic Micro-Adjustor icon Gyromatic Micro-Adjustor, and Arclight Spanner Icon Arclight Spanner to make some Shadowlands items. They can be quite expensive on auction sites which is why we recommend purchasing a less expensive Gnomish Army Knife Icon Gnomish Army Knife instead. This also saves you a lot of space in your bag! Ultimate Gnomish Army Knife Icon Ultimate Gnomish Army Knife also works, so just buy the tools that are least expensive on your server.

Craft Handful of Laestrite Bolts. Icon Handful of Laestrite Bolts and Porous Polishing Abrasive Icon Porous Polishing Abrasive until Level 25 and your choice of Mortal Coiled Spring Icon Mortal Coiled Spring (cheaper but not as beneficial as recipes progress) as well as Wormfed Gear Assembly Icon Wormfed Gear Assembly until Level 75.

These are the baseline manufacturing materials that you'll need to build the most beautiful crafts in the future and you could decide to align with them, so you can save money in the future.

All Materials Required for 25 Handful of laestrite Bolts Image Handful Of Laestrite Bolts and 50 Wormfed Gear Assembly Icon Wormfed Gear Assembly: 175 laestrite Ore Image Laestrite Ore, 200 Handful of Laestrite Bolts Icon Handful of Laestrite Bolts 250 Polishing Abrasive Porous Icon Porous Polishing Abrasive, and 50 Machinist's Oil Image Machinist's Oil.

75-100 Shadowlands Engineering

Craft Infra-green Reflex Sight icon Reflex Sight in Infra-Green with Optical Target Embiggener Icon Optical Target Embiggener until level 91 and the option of Grounded Ectoplasmic Specs Icon Grounded Specifications, Articulated EctoplasmicSpecs Icon Articulated Ectoplasmic Specifications and Reinforced Ectoplasmic Specifics Icon Reinforced Ectoplasmic Specifications or Flexible Ectoplasmic Specs Icon Flexible Specs to 100

Finally, you will be able to earn gold by selling the scopes you make here. While crafting goggles is not the most gold-rich option due to their bind on pickup but they are the most reliable method of make it to 100.

The Total Materials of the 16 Optical Target Embiggener Icon Optical Target Embiggener and 3 Articulated Ectoplasmic Specifications Icon Articulated Ectoplasmic Specs 25 Wormfed Gear Assembly Icon Wormfed Gear Assembly 95 Handful of Laestrite Bolts Icon A Handful Laestrite Bolts, 19 Angerseye Icon Angerseye and 16 Oriblase Icon Oriblase 3 Umbryl Icon Umbryl This is 15 Desolate. Leather Icon Desolate Leather and 15 Pallid Bone Icon Pallid Bone.

Making Gold with Engineering in Shadowlands

Engineering and gold mining is more about selling Disposable Spectrophasic Reanimator Icon Disposable Specific Reanimators (as they are consumed on use) along with Wormhole Generator Shadowlands Icon Wormhole Generator: Shadowlands (which are bothersome to create). Scopes, the gun that is crafted as well as the pet, PHA7YNX Icon PHA7YNX is also good, depending on the prices of your server.

Goggles, belt enchants and the bind on pickup toys are fantastic reasons to consider this profession, but do not earn any gold.

Because there are so many people who are advancing Engineering because of its unique tools, the tools are used to create and sell basic reagents such as Porous Polishing Abrasive Icon Porous Polishing Abrasive, Handful Laestrite Bolts Icon The Handful Laestrite Bolts and Wormfed Gear Assembly Icon Wormfed Gear Assembly and Mortal Coiled Spring Icon Mortal Coiled Spring is usually quite worth it!

There could be a opportunity of Nutcracker Grenade Icon Nutcracker Grenade and its companion explosives, but the fact that they cause only damage instead of having a potent incapacitate, like the WoW Vanilla counterpart, Iron Grenade Icon Iron Grenade is what reduces their efficacy in addition to their five minute cooling down.

Engineering is distinct from other fields in that it can create a range of extremely valuable old world craft items that sell for very high amounts. The most notable of these is Sky Golem Icon Sky Golem Icon Sky Golem, which is still the only mount to allow non-Druids to harvest herbs without dismounting. There are many other mounts that you can sell, but they will typically sell less as they are cosmetic-only.

You can also make Goblin Glider Kit icons Goblin Glider Kits that are widely used while leveling and questing in the world. You can go through this Reddit thread, created by Kurraga for further details on old crafts you can sell.

As always, we suggest using The Undermine Journal to track the prices of raw materials and the crafts you wish to sell on your server. Make sure you purchase the raw materials on days they are likely to be sold for a small amount and then sell your work on days when they are sold for more, usually in the usual raid days of Sunday, Wednesday and Tuesday.

Crafter's Signatures (Item upgrade to level)

Like all professions, engineers can make upgrades to items using optional reagents such as the Crafter's Mark II Icon Crafter's Mark II These are reagents available for purchase that increase the item level of gear crafted while crafting. In Patch 9.1 it adds two new ranks available, which makes a total of four:

Crafter's Mark I icon Maker's Mark I is taught by the Engineering Trainer in Oribos.

Crafter's Mark II Icon Crafter's Mark II is bought by Venari at The Maw.

Crafter's Mark III Icon Crafter's Mark III is purchased by the brand new Death's Advance reputation at Honored reputation.

Crafter's Mark of the Chained Isle Icon Crafter's Mark of the Chained Isle is available for purchase from Archivist Roh-Suir if you reach Rank 4 in the latest The Archivist's Codex reputation.

Auctioneer accessible only to Engineers

You will find Photonic Gearhaggle The Holographic Auctioneer within Oribos located near your Engineering trainer. He is only accessible to Engineers, but you don't require a high level of Engineering, there is no Engineering prerequisite to be a skilled player in order to join this NPC, the only requirement is to have Engineering as a field of study.

Optional Reagents

The reagents can alter the level of an crafted weapon or armor. (You can even lower an item's level of item and the requirement for its level if you select a lower level optional reagent) The three optional reagents below can only be used for crafting objects from Shadowlands. All eight manufacturing professions are able to craft these, meaning they're not restricted to Engineering.

This guide's main focus is leveling Engineering however, you may visit my Shadowlands Engineering Guide if you are interested in learning more about the new improvements, bonuses to engineering, and recipes. Engineering is the most effective when combined with Mining, as it allows you to farm most of the needed materialsand save gold. Therefore, you should read my Mining guide to leveling if you are looking to level up Mining prior to Engineering. However, the most efficient way to achieve this level is to purchase all the equipment from the Auction House.
